Exhaust fumes can be very deadly, and as a former auto mechanic of over 40 years, I know what exhaust fumes can do to you. But it seems some people, like my next-door neighbor, couldn’t care less.

During the winter time I can understand people want to warm up their vehicles. But you don’t have to run your vehicles for a long period of time, as my neighbor does. I’ve seen, heard and smelled him running his vehicle for 30, 60 and 90 minutes at a time.

I am literally sick and tired of having to be subjected to this. I wonder if there is some sort of city ordinance for idling vehicles too long — if not there should be.
